Can we have some more information? What are the files, and where did you get them?

Klez can cause that to happen...but so can a lot of other viruses. More information is really needed here.

Sounds very much like a virus. A good anti-virus program can be found at www.f-prot.com
It does the traditional Signature Scan to find viruses but also uses Checksum and Heuristic scan to find new and hard to identify viruses. Hope that helps.
